Each month at DuBois Law we will take a deeper look into subjects that we work closely with that are also relevant to public interest. This space, this blog, is a way for us to discuss what really happens when someone is arrested, how trial proceedings can occur for a variety of different charges and cases, and overall, what rights you have, and how to protect and exercise these rights, should the moment arise.
It should be stated that this is attorney advertising. The information on this website is for general information purposes only. Nothing on this site should be taken as legal advice for any individual case or situation. This information is not intended to create, and receipt or viewing does not constitute an attorney-client relationship. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome.
As stiff as that statement sounds, it is necessary. As every Buffalo NY defense lawyer knows, each case is entirely different, and demands a different attention, so expectations should be measured. When a person needs an attorney after facing charges or being arrested, that person usually wants their attorney to tell them that everything will be ok. As a matter of professionalism and respect for clients, DuBois Law will work hard, applying years of litigating to help someone's charges get dismissed or lowered, but we will be honest. We will not mislead a client into believing that things are less serious than they are, but we will put our years of experience to use to get the most favorable outcome for each client.
At DuBois, we have a track record of excellent defense work that speaks for itself. This is because every hearing, every disposition, every substantial point in your case, you will have an attorney representing your truth, fighting for your rights, and negotiating for the best possible outcome.
Be Wary of Promises
If an “attorney” hears of your charges and says they can get your charges dismissed, this “attorney” may not understand the legal system. Judges and juries decide the outcome of cases when they go to trial, not attorneys. Attorneys work to show the facts of the case to achieve a favorable outcome for their client. The outcome depends on the presentation—how effectively your attorney presents the facts and evidences of the case to truthfully and convincingly tell your story.
Your Story Matters
How your attorney presents your case, how they tell your story in a criminal defense case, largely determines how the charges will be judged. To receive a favorable outcome, an experienced attorney needs to know all the facts of each case, but facts do not fully represent how events transpired to the level of crime. The more informed your attorney is as to what happened and how you landed in handcuffs, the more an experienced attorney will have to tell your story to prove your innocence or lower the charges.
Building Relationships Through Trust
Honesty is not just a tenet all of our elders tried to instill in us, it is what the legal system depends on. At DuBois, we hold ourselves to the highest standards of integrity and honesty, building trusting relationships with each individual that requires our legal aid. If you need a Buffalo NY defense attorney, DuBois Law will use their long-standing legal expertise and experience to help lift the stress of criminal charges from your life.
